First impressions

The Eurohike Peak Folding Chair may be the most basic chair we have tested recently, but for the most part it does the job – it has a tall back rest, and it will take up to 90kg/198lb in weight with no issues. The frame doesn’t feel quite as solid as some of the more expensive chairs we tested out, but it will still stay put nonetheless, and wide rubber-bottomed legs help mitigate too much sinking into soft ground (which is actually better than can be said of some pricier chairs).

If you do weigh over 90kg/198lb, or regularly find yourself with a child (or partner) on your lap, we’d definitely recommend picking something better quality and more robust – the Peak does feel flimsy in construction, the seat is quite narrow, and wouldn’t suit anyone with large legs. At this pocket-friendly price the Eurohike Peak Folding Chair doesn’t need to boast of many extra design features but there’s still a cup holder in one arm that will hold your beer, plus a carry case for easy transportation.

In the field

We have been busy testing the Peak on weekend camping trips in Cornwall and always found it reliable and reasonably comfortable, although we aren’t sure it’d last more than a few years of regular use. Nevertheless, this is a great all-rounder of a camping chair, and ideal if you’re buying chairs for casual camping trips for a family of four, and don’t want to break the bank. It would also work well if you want a chair for the garden or for festivals that you can use and abuse without worrying about it. The Eurohike Peak Folding Chair is available in multiple colourways, in case you like your camping kit to be matchy-matchy.
